    Hi @ladybundle - Welcome to the community & thank you for joining. I have some understanding of your hypermobility problems, as I also have this. I have the hypermobile type of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, & this has caused me to have arthritis in many joints. You might find the Ehlers-Danlos UK Support group helpful too. See: https://www.ehlers-danlos.org/
    Scope has also provided some help for our mental health during this pandemic: https://www.scope.org.uk/advice-and-support/mental-health-and-coronavirus
    I hope you find us all friendly here, & supportive too, & I look forward to hearing from you again. :)

    Hi @ladybundle, how are you today?  You are quite right to make the most of your time with your child and move forward every day in life.  That is the right way to be.  How have you been managing during lock-down?  I'm sorry to hear that you haven't had much contact with people over the years.  You will find lots of lovely people to chat to on here as everyone is very friendly and it is a great place to meet new friends.  I hope you are having a nice weekend and have been enjoying the lovely sunshine we are having.  :smile:

    Hi @ladybundle - I'm sorry to read about the difficulties you've been facing, but hope you are enjoying spending more time with your son just now. Yes, small steps, & you will move forward. Being positive at this time, perhaps even more than before this pandemic, is the way to move forward, as you say.
    I hope you & your son are therefore enjoying this 'extra' time you have together, as well as the lovely weather. I hope you've both had a good weekend. Lovely to talk to you. :)

    Welcome to the community @ladybundle. That's a positive attitude to have. Have you and your son been doing much during lockdown together?

    Hello and welcome nice to have you on board.

    I too have a teenage son and he is my world my rock and my inspiration.

    We do what we can together and I must admit me becoming disabled 3 years ago has brought us closer than we would have been and I am being a bit selfish and loving having him at home all the time during lockdown (it does have a bonus)
